    The Best Sat Nav

    Hi all, my dads birthday is coming up and I want to buy him a sat nav, but I don't know what are good brands/models and what are bad ones.

    - I want to spend under 100 pounds.
    - Is that possible
    - Can anyone recommend me any?

    Thanks all

    Hi, in my experience, the "brand" of satnav, isnt as crucial as the cost and availability of maps and updates etc...
    Meaning dont go straight for the tomtom just BECAUSE its a tomtom

    you can get cheap with a binatone one and then "upgrade" it with the Tom Tom software.

    Navman are also very good.

    i got nice basic garmin 200.

    (now updated with 205) _link_

    works well, is quite accurate.

    can be got from halfords cheaper i think. (try argos/pricerunner etc etc)

    Second hand TomTom One?

    TomTom's are best

    Maybe able to get a new one for around £100

    Garmin's are ok but not as updateable

    tomtom software is excellent ill give u that, but ive had an old trumpion, outlive a tomtom in the hardware steaks

    never heard of trumpion. stick with Tom Tom the menu system is easy to follow, they have full postcode recognition, they are used by most satnav users on the road and they are available for less than £100 from Amazon


    Actually found one at The Range for £64.99 + £4.95 delivery

    Exactly, your are talking tomtom software!, I run tomtom software on the trumpion

    Hi
    I am looking for a SAtnav for Europe that good update facilities, inc price

    I borrowed a TOMtom last week new last Xmas. found some of the instructions confusing in fact we took the wrong motorway at one point due to tow exits in close proximity, and needing to concentrate due to amount of traffic/drivers
    At another point it said take the exit and take the exit, luckily I knew that bit of road, but if I was using it without this knowledge I would have been LOST.

    I have previously used a Nissan built in Satnav, that said when it was re-routing you the tom tom did not.

    Any help and tips gratefully received

    Garmin FTW

    Just got Garmin 255WT from Amazon for my hubby - has the free for life traffic warnings and the bigger screen - he likes it so far!
